Descripción del producto
"Regardless of religious beliefs or life situations, any reader would benefit from the Mindfulness-Based Stillness Meditation (MBSM) techniques clearly outlined here. There are many user-friendly books that teach basic meditation, but this edition is particularly unique in its authors' life stories and expertise in the mind-body connection. Bedson spent time in India learning from masters at a Tibetan monastery, and Gawler, diagnosed with swiftly fatal osteogenic sarcoma at the age of 24, overcame his painful disease through meditation and lifestyle change and has remained cancer-free since 1978."

--Dr. Bernie Siegel, author of "Love, Medicine and Miracles"
"A wonderfully practical, inspiring guide both for preventing and healing cancer."
--Dr. Joan Borysenko, author of "Minding the Body, Mending the Mind"
"There is hope for people with life-threatening cancer, and this book is where to find it."
--George Jelinek, Professor of Emergency Medicine, University of Western Australia
Reseña del editor
Meditation is increasingly recommended for relaxation, for enhancing relationships and well-being, to increase performance in sports and business, for personal growth, and to assist healing. Introducing mindfulness-based stillness meditation, Ian Gawler and Paul Bedson explain how to build a daily meditation practice. The authors also show how meditation can be used to work with our emotions, aid healing, manage pain, or as a spiritual practice.
Meditation is a path we can pursue and refine throughout our lives. Drawing on modern science as well as ancient Eastern traditions and the authors' own extensive personal experience as practitioners and teachers, this guide offers the techniques and understanding needed to explore meditation practice deeply. It is also an invaluable resource for meditation teachers from all background.

TRUE STORY. I never could duplicate that. And YOU explain it to me.
Since then I've read various books on meditation. In terms of content, writing and ORGANIZATION -- this the best I've seen. It's laid out very well, with a ton of information on meditation, mindfulness and , its huge potential as a way to cope with modern day life, stress, anxieties -- and even help physical healing. I can't stress enough how important the WRITING and ORGANIZATION are in books like this. This is really the basic book I would now recommended to someone since it is so crammed with information both on how to do meditation, how to do meditation i ways that fit the modern lifestyle, the the spiritual, mental and physical benefits of it -- and it makes you want to read more on it.
The benefits of mediation have been well documented by researches, universities and those who've practiced it throughout the years. It's not just sitting in an imposed-from-outside, difficult posture and reciting a mantra. In fact, there is a lot of flexibility in how you do it.
Another benefit of this book: it really gets you excited about doing it and will give you the discipline to keep doing it.
It'll also get you all fired up to read books on mediation -- but I suggest you start with this well organized, content heavy, and exceedingly well written book first.
What I liked best about the book was that the authors presented several different approaches to reaching the meditative state, rather than a "one size fits all" direction like some books. The authors have different backgrounds and personalities which also added to the many ways of approaching the subject. There were parts of the book that were a little redundant, but overall it was very helpful.
